Just a week ago, Tether Ltd., the company behind USDT’s largest stablecoin, released XAU₮ on January 23, with each token representing ownership of an ounce of good physical gold held in a Swiss vault. Stablecoins are available as ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain and TRC20 tokens on the TRON blockchain.
Bitfinex listed the new stablecoin on January 24. Hodlers XAU ₮ get the combined benefits of both physical and digital assets. They will be able to enjoy ownership of gold while avoiding restrictions related to physical gold,
such as high storage costs and limited access.
